A late-term abortionist could be forced out of business in Maryland after pro-lifers asked a medical waste company to drop its cooperation.
Leroy Carhart is based in Nebraska but travels to Bethesda, Maryland to perform late-term abortions.
His work in Bethesda, however, could be impacted after Operation Rescue led a campaign urging Biomedical Waste Services to stop working with Carhart, where it hauls away aborted babies.
"Probably within three hours of actually dropping the email that launched the project," reports Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue, "we had a letter from the bio-waste company saying that they were terminating all services at Carhart's abortion clinic."
The company also hinted it had canceled contracts with other abortion clinics in Maryland.
In the case of Carthart, who aborts fetuses up to 7 ½ weeks into pregnancy, the announcement could pose a problem.
"You can imagine," says Sullenger, "after a certain amount of time, this is going to become an untenable situation for that abortion clinic. And they may be forced to close, so that is our prayer at this point."
